We have been the local organizers for Net2 in Guatemala for a couple of years and now am part of their Ambassadors group ( http://www.meetup.com/Guatemala-NetSquared-Meetup/). I represent a Tech park, Campus Tec (please read about us here: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/17/world/americas/a-silicon-valley-dream-grows-in-guatemala-city.html?_r=3&src=tp&smid=fb-share)
Would it be possible to organize a local tech club or at least have access to your methology to use it locally…We have over 600 young technical entrepreneurs and professionals in our park.
I me recently in DC with Bethany Lister in the 14NTC and she explained to us how it works.
Hope you are interested and here is may contact information:

I’ve been reading the New Yorker article on crowdsourcing weapon identification in Libya. http://ow.ly/rnq2v It got me thinking about our #Net2 Tripoli organizer Aladdin El-Haraty, who reached out to me today to discuss planning his next meeting.
#Net2 amazes and inspires me… especially when we have organizers who are so committed to building civil society that they’re holding events in the middle of a civil war.
#Net2 Melbourne and Adelaide co-presented a #GivingTuesday event. Check out Ben Teoh’s report.
